Our Campaign Storyends 19 Nov 2018, 11:59 PM
In the early morning hours of 20 July 2017, our little boy died. He was only ten weeks old. His name was Ryder.
At the time, we believed the cause of death to be Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or SIDS, formerly known as cot death. In the weeks and months that followed, we eventually discovered that he had actually died from viral pneumonia. According to the autopsy. Once again, our lives were ripped apart. How could we not know? How did we fail him as parents? Are we to blame? He seemed so healthy and happy? It didn't make any sense then, and it still doesn't make any sense now.
But what matters to Sue and I now, is that we continue to help infants in any way we possibly can. So, as we did last year, we have organised a Ride For Ryder 94km and 20km cycle to raise funds for Arc Children's Centre. Please join the ride, or donate whatever you can.
This is for our little man Ryder, and all the children and parents in Singapore that may need help.
